MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin lawmakers are considering a proposal to allow residents to stay on the state's do-not-call list permanently, without having to re-register. Currently, residents must register every two years to stay on the list. The proposal from Sen. Sheila Harsdorf and Rep. Andre Jacque also would ban political robocalls made to people on the list.
Do-not-call regulations already bar most machine-dialed calls, but calls from nonprofit groups, including political parties, are exempt. Harsdorf and Jacque said that they have received numerous complaints about political robocalls.

Why is it hard to sometimes find parking spaces in downtown La Crosse?
A big reason could be that people who might otherwise ride buses are driving cars instead. But MTU boss Keith Carlson is always trying to attract more riders. There has been talk of buses making stops every 15 minutes, instead of each half-hour. This Wednesday, Carlson and MTU board members meet with the La Crosse parking utility board to work on ways to meet their mutual needs.
